The scene at Doak Cambell Stadium ahead of the Florida State-Georgia Tech season opener.

The game was scheduled to kick off at 3:30 p.m. and was pushed back until at least 4 p.m.

The Seminoles were on the field beginning their warm ups when the players were called off the field because of concerns about lightning in the area.

Brief showers pelted Doak Campbell Stadium a limited number of fans admitted to the game scattered for cover.

Players from both teams returned to the field at around 3:15 p.m., with Florida State in full uniform as they resumed their pregame warm-up.

FSU coach Mike Norvell spent last weekend trying to prepare his team for every potential game-day issue during their final preseason scrimmage, including a lightning delay.
